Original Star Wars -BTS, Outtakes, And More

The original Star Wars was released in 1977, and ever since then we have been in love with all things Luke, Leia, Han, Darth Vader, and everything else with this iconic movie franchise.

We have scoured the depths of “A Galaxy Far Far Away” (and the internet) to uncover these rare photos that include:

  • Chewbacca getting a makeover and groomed
  • The actors that played C-3PO and R2-D2 (yes, there was actually a person inside of R2-D2)
  • Yoda as you have never seen before
  • The Making of The Death Star & Millennium Falcon
  • Han, Luke, and Leia Outtakes
  • And Much More…


Here we have a candid photo that show a bit of playfulness between the cast members as Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) pokes her finger in to the slit that serves as the mouth on C-3PO.

While on the set of The Empire Strikes Back, she and Anthony Daniels who played the droid are joking around in between takes. Daniels and Fisher did actually get together pretty well together which is pretty surprising given the fact that Daniels was reported as being a bit hard to work with. Some of the other members of the cast and crew apparently had a few issues with him being disagreeable and unruly.

This was especially true between him and the actor who played R2-D2, Kenny Baker. Yes, there was actually a person inside of that metal thing. The two were both put into very uncomfortable suits which surely didn’t help with their tempers, and with the two being in so many scenes together, they couldn’t quite spend much time apart to chill their attitudes. To this day, the two don’t get along together. That is what makes this picture a bit of an outlier, seeing Anthony Daniels actually getting along with another with another cast member in such a pleasant way.
